One Injured in Early Morning Structure Fire

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

Missoula Fire Department officials said one person was injured in an early morning structure fire.

The fire department dispatched to a fully engulfed structure fire at 2413 Skyline Drive at approximately 3 a.m. Monday morning.

Three engine companies, a truck company and Battalion Chief responded, along with multiple police department units and an ambulance from Missoula Emergency Services.

On arrival crews report a working fire, fully involved. Fire crews initially protected exposures and initiated a defensive fire attack. Strong gusty winds increased fire intensity and made firefighting efforts difficult.

The injured person was transported to St. Patrick Hospital for treatment and evaluation.

Red Cross is working with the family to arrange temporary housing and address other basic needs.

Fire investigators are on scene, no determination has been made as to the cause of the fire. The investigation is on going at this time.

Further questions should be directed to representatives of the Missoula Fire Department's Fire Prevention Bureau during regular business hours at 552-6210.
